Arise, Shine!

April 22, 2014

Isaiah 60:1

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,

    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.


Perhaps it is just me, but the Light seems to be shining extra brightly this

morning and my fine feathered choir seems to sing more

sweetly than ever!

In Season . . . Quote For Tuesday

April 8, 2014

Deuteronomy 11:14-16

14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.

Power In Weakness

Nothing is so strong as gentleness. Nothing is so gentle as real strength. - Ralph W. Sockman -

Finding Peace

April 2, 2014

16 He shall dwell on high:

his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks:

bread shall be given him;

his waters shall be sure.

17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty:

they shall behold the land that is very far off.

18 Thine heart shall meditate terror.

Where is the scribe?

Where is the receiver?

where is he that counted the towers?

Isaiah 33:16-18

Go On, Cry!

February 12, 2014

Sometimes I just need to cry out “Abba!” and He is always there when I do . . . and when I do not.  He knows my every need.  How amazing is that love?

Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Psalm 119:76
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.

John 14:1
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me

Simply Blessed – Word For Today

Psalm 23

King James Version (KJV)

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.


Can there be anything more beautiful than the 23rd Psalm?  Images, poetry . . . we read it, recite it, love it . . . books are written on it, yet it seems the most profound message, and the simplest, escapes us in our day-to-day walk.

As I faced the challenges of my day this morning I was reminded of its value  as a prophetic message of life with Christ.  Surrender, follow, absent of fear, absent of stress, carrying no heavy load.  Sheep who do this have joy and purpose, and rest and all their needs and more are met.  The ones  who run on their own?  They also are sought after in love and given the same grace.

I needed to be reminded of this.  Perhaps you did too?  Blessings!


Are You Lost?

January 30, 2014

When you are lost in the wilderness, you have two choices. You can focus on how many trees there are and so close together  that they are blocking most of the sun light . . . . or you can focus on the Light that breaks through and know that you are being provided with direction . . . and follow that path.

John 1:5

 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
